Please help me! My kitten is about 7 months old. He is
My kitten is about 7 months old. He is eating, drinking, peeing and pooping. He has been lethargic for about five days. He has been to the veterinarian on Monday, his fever was 103.9. He was given fluids under his skin, and a shot, and we were told to go home and the symptoms should subside if it's a cold or a flu. On Tuesday, his fever was 104.1. He was given fluids again under his skin, as he was dehydrated, even though he's drinking. He was also prescribed on Tuesday, his fever was 104.1. He was given fluids again under his skin, as he was dehydrated, even though he's drinking. He was also prescribed Onsior for 3 days, with medication being given the first day he was prescribed it. Today's Wednesday, the fifth day. He is lethargic, he has a fever, he is constantly sleeping, especially for the last three days. He doesn't want to walk. I got a blood test yesterday, but it takes two days to get the results. And I am just very concerned. His breathing is more frequent, he is not walking, constantly sleeping, yet he is drinking, eating, peeing, and pooping, but he becomes dehydrated and has a fever.

His condition is currently under undefined … read more

My kitten is 10 months old. He was healthy when i took him
My kitten is 10 months old. He was healthy when i took him in three weeks ago to get neatured after three weeks i have noticed his tummy getting bigger i took him to a vet they said it is most likely FIP but not sure yet Im heart broken... I was told there is no cure for that but i have heard stories from other that their cats survived. It was just bacterial infection and was cured I'm thinking perhaps this is some sort of bacterial infection he has gotten from post surgery. I mean what are the chances . He was fine for 10 months and right after surgery he developed this bloated tummy? He is eating, and drinks water, plays outside during his playtime seems fine i was just looking up online to see if there are other kittens like my kitten, Zeus and they have been treated … read more
